Spo the Difference 

Namibia Institute for Democracy, in collaboration wih the Hanns Seidel Foundation and the United Nationas Development Program, launched its 3rd  "Spot the Difference" publication. The publication gives Namibian voters an opportunity to compare the different political parties taking part in the upcoming presidential and National Assembly elections and to find out which party represents their interests.

 Why is the independent presidential candidate Panduleni Itula not part of “Spot the Difference”?

NID would like to respond to a number of comments on social media (Facebook, to be exact) that raised the question why our publication does not include the independent candidate for the upcoming presidential elections Dr. Panduleni Itula. We would like to refer to the disclaimer of our publication in order to answer this question:

“Disclaimer Spot the Difference 3rd Edition (2019)

Between June and August, 2019, all seventeen political parties that were registered with the Electoral Commission of Namibia (ECN), had been engaged to complete an interview questionnaire. Provision for face-to-face interviews had been arranged to take place in the first two weeks of August for those parties that could not meet the submittal deadline for the completed questionnaire. The questionnaire incorporated six questions addressing topical, socio-economic and political issues that were formulated to ensure that the Namibian electorate would be assisted to make informed decisions during the 2019 Presidential and National Assembly Elections.

The decision to profile 13 political parties in this publication was based on their willingness to respond to the interview questions. Considering that a three-month period had been specified and communicated to all 17 parties, no political party was subjected to discrimination nor deliberately excluded from being featured herein.” (See page 2 of Spot The Difference 2019)

Dr. Itula only registered with the ECN on Tuesday, 8th of October 2019. Due to this late registration it was not possible to include him in the publication; the exclusion was not deliberate. As of printing his candidacy was not announced.
